No, you have two DB different parameters, and one xDB parameter:


The xDB is used to record what the previous database search was - if the
user switches database we want to reset the results to page 1 and clear
any relevance feedback judgements, and this is how we track that.

It's very hard to know from the information given, but my guess is that
you've not removed this line from the default query template:

$if{$dbname,<INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME=DB VALUE="$html{$dbname}">}

So that would setting DB to the value from the previous search, and
you're also setting it from the checkboxes.  But I could be way off.
